A recent change to the federal investment rules in the Pension Benefits Standards Regulations, 1985 (Canada) came into effect on July 1, 2010. In addition to federally regulated pension plans, this change will impact sponsors of provincially regulated pension plans in provinces where the federal investment rules have been incorporated into the provincial pension legislation. These provinces include, among others, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
